Hi, my name is Bella. I got my license from Eastern Virginia Career College in their 750-hour medical massage program. Massage therapy has always been something I knew I wanted to pursue and had a natural talent for.
Massage has been my go-to for constant self-care, whether it’s for physical pain or de-stressing. Massage can help with anxiety and the overall quieting of the mind when used to engage the parasympathetic nervous system through relaxing modalities like Swedish and therapeutic massage.
Medical massage is great for any aches and pains you may feel through the daily use of your body, from previous injuries to surgeries to any other bodily trauma. These modalities include deep tissue, sports, cupping, and gua sha massage. My massage technique is a balance between relaxation and medical modalities because I always want my clients to relax while still receiving the treatment they need.
Most importantly, I always want a tailored treatment plan for each client.
I’m so thankful to share my passion with you and help retrain your body to function at its optimal level. I’m constantly looking to connect with my clients and make them feel seen, heard, and physically well.

Hi, my name is Emma, and I’m a certified medical massage therapist. I graduated from Career Training Solutions in 2015 with 500 hours of educational time.

Knowing that my clients will have a permanently better quality of life after achieving our goals during our session is why I love my job and why you will too.
